6. Arya Stark just happens to bump into Ed Sheeran

After murdering countless Freys, Arya hits to the woods on horseback. She hears the tune of a man singing in the forest, coming across a group of soldiers camping around a fire. They greet her kindly, offering her to stay and join them for a while. Stepping off the horse, Arya obliges, and joins the group.

Upon closer inspection, we can see that the young man singing is none other than Ed Sheeran. Well, it’s a soldier played by Ed Sheeran, technically. But it’s hard not to think of him as such, as they did nothing to change his appearance and they literally had him singing his way onto the show. In any case, Arya is a fan, and tells him she loved his melody.

The men treat Arya very well, offering her some food and insisting she take it when she tries not to. They ask her where she’s heading, when she just so matter of factly tells them that she’s on her way to kill the Queen. They all burst out in laughter of course, but little do they know that she is dead serious.
